Riga Black Balsam


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Riga Black balsam is the famous national brand name. The dark and astringent liqueur made of 24 herbs remains unchanged for 250 years. The balsam is good when drinking alone or as part of hot drinks and cocktails. It brings special flavor to chocolate products and deserts; it is used with coffee or to soak candied fruits. People drink balsam with coffee in winter, and in summer pour it on cold ice-cream balls. One teaspoon of balsam in a hot cup of tea releases from chill.

"Deliciously different, exceptionally smooth and velvety on the palate, Riga Black Balsam opens a whole world of sensations with its 24 ingredients. Subtle hints of linden blossom, birch bud, valerian root, raspberry, bilberry, and ginger as well as touches of nutmeg and black peppercorn tease the palate and come alive in the glass." -producer
